[sudo-workers] sudo problem with trusted mode of HP-UX

The reason sudo does not use pam_open_session() is that there is
no persistent process to call pam_close_session() after the command
is finished.  Doing one without the other may have some negative
consequences depending on what session setup is done by
pam_open_session() on the particular system.
